DETAILED ITINERARY

Night tour to understand Islam

Night tour for the Die-Hards! Not for the regular tourist!

The night tour to understand Islam is for people with a certain mindset and have flexibility should the conditions at the order change for our visit.

This is not a show designed for tourists, we visit an actual and ancient Islamic order where they perform their spirituality. We are only welcome as visitors who have a deep interest and hopefully understanding of spirituality in Islam.

The night tour to understand Islam tour visits the order of Jerrahi in their territory. Jerrahis are a traditional Muslim Sufi order. Their ritual is completely different and it’s called a zikr.

It includes live music so it’s also a door to understand Islamic culture. The head convention in Karagumruk is very traditional and the zikr runs every Monday.

Our night tour to understand Islam runs in this order:

-Meet at Suleymaniye and visit the Mosque before evening prayer. It’s a truly mystic atmosphere.

-Dinner at a very traditional Turkish Restaurant, vegetarians are well catered.

-Talk about Islam, orders, and spirituality until the night prayer

-Walk or taxi to Karagumruk

-Watch the Jerrahi zikr for about 1,5 hours in their own territory.

There are lots of restrictions involved with the Night Tour To Understand Islam as this is not a touristic occasion. It’s very real, and we promise it is the most interesting event you’ll ever see in a Muslim country.

This tour runs only on Mondays and starts at 125Euros.
